TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — All New Jersey state government websites are back online after being shut down for several hours.
The websites, along with many agency computer systems, were automatically shut down around 2 a.m. Friday when there was a fire alarm at a data processing center in West Trenton. Officials say the alarm was a false one, possibly caused by high temperatures.
Most of the state sites, including those for the lottery, Motor Vehicles Commission and governor’s office, were back online around 11 a.m. Friday. But it took several more hours to resolve some technical issues with the Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s website.
Treasury Department spokesman Bill Quinn said all of the state’s computer systems and websites were fully operational as of late Saturday morning.
